AGS Acquires Lucky Lucky Jackpot Side Bet

On January 6, AGS announced that it has acquired the player favorite Lucky Lucky Jackpot blackjack side bet from Aces Up Gaming. The asset enhances AGS’ content portfolio and provides opportunity for further growth of its industry-leading progressives.

“With more than 1,000 units across the country, Lucky Lucky is an established and high-performing side bet that supercharges the base game of blackjack for a one-of-a-kind player experience,” said John Hemberger, senior vice president of table products at AGS. “Popular in both e-tables and online gaming formats, Lucky Lucky’s appeal extends beyond the traditional brick-and-mortar live table game environment, making it a natural next step to introduce with a progressive.

“We believe Lucky Lucky will further cement our position as the leading provider of blackjack progressive content in the industry.”

Lucky Lucky totals the player’s cards with the dealer’s up card to trigger pay table outcomes. At the start of each hand, players may place the Lucky Lucky wager in addition to the underlying blackjack wager. Each player receives the first two cards, which are added to the dealer’s up card to create a three-card total; odds are paid if the total is 19 or higher, with the top award paid for suited 7-7-7.
